About Me

PS: "My Mail Box" is part of the address. Do not leave it out or the address will be incomplete.

🙋🏻‍♀️Hi! I am Wen (or 汶).

I am in my 30s.

I am a piano teacher/music educator.

I love both the visual and performing arts (music performance, illustration, photography), travelling, and learning about cultures, history, and traditions.

I also enjoy reading inspiring books and watching inspiring (korean) drama. My latest craze is Dr John. Ji Sung's acting and characrer has inspired me to read When Breath Becomes Air.

I can read, write and speak fluent English and Mandarin.

I usually post spoilers on my Instagram. They also act as proof that I have mailed out the letter/postcard.

💖I am currently collecting postcards, washi samples and used postage stamps.

🥢Please do not send me food/things that will melt as I do not want the other things/content in the mail to be ruined!

🍹I only drink plain water due to health issues. So please do not send me tea or coffee.

🙅🏻‍♀️I am not a fan of Kpop, Hello Kitty, cats and birds.

✉Please use real postage stamps when you send me postcards/letters/items (no sticker label postage please if possible), as I really love and enjoy looking at the traditional stamps on the mails or postcards addressed to me. Each stamp tells a unique story!

  • Scents, perfumes, scented candles, smoke smell

  • Tea leaves, tea bags, coffee, or other beverages

About Rating

I feel strongly about rating. I always rate my partners in a timely manner to show appreciation for their efforts. If you are a non-rater, please stay far away from me. I will not tolerate such unappreciativeness.

I also try not to give a 3 unless necessary.

Non-raters blacklisted:

  • CraftyShana76 (Even after 2 reminders to rate me from 1 Apr to 9 Apr 2020, she blatently ignored me while still joining other swaps. She only left me a rating after I posted on her page and blacklisted her on my page. She then happily deleted my post on her page.)

Supposed to rate a 3 or 1 but I did not do so:

  • Babsiepoo did not meet the private swap requirements to send 1 written and stamped postcard based on profile preferences. I am absolutely not a fan of typical touristy postcards and have stated so on my profile. She sent 2 touristy Belgium postcards in an envelope. Now what should I do with them? 🤔

Comment: Hi TP. Thanks for that great postcard. It was interesting in many ways. One, I love dogs. Two, zentangle is great. Three, the plaid wrap. Four, wrapping cardboard in the plaid wrap then adding the front and back. Very unique. You definitely earned a heart. Thanks so much for swapping with me.
Response: I drew a dog and chose to use that particular washi tape on purpose as I have read your profile! I am glad you like it! :) Will rate you once I receive yours!
